Returning to the catwalk during the Fall 2016 season, Webb both joined Naomi Campbell and Alek Wek at Yeezy’s much-hyped presentation and treated Sophie Theallet’s audience to a rare runway appearance. Though she still enjoys the thrill of fashion month’s controlled chaos and is signed to Trump’s Legends Division, these days Webb is involved in a whole new side of the industry, launching a skin-care business with Rodan + Fields; kick-starting her official website, TheRealVeronicaWebb.com; and serving as beauty editor of luxury indie mag As If. Now a mother, entrepreneur, and editor, Webb reflects on more than 30 years of success—and why her 50s may be the most exciting time of her life. ...»

Webb had been a force of nature on the runway in the ’90s, breaking boundaries for women of color during a period when there were still few black supermodels, but her work in fashion slowed after the birth of her daughters. Still, due in part to her strong relationships with designers like Kawakubo, Lagerfeld, and, of course, Alaïa, she has found the industry continues to embrace her. ...»

VS Fantasy Bras: She wore the Diamond Dream Bra in 1997 and the Heavenly "70" Fantasy Bra in 2004.
You might also know her from: America's Next Top Model, where she teaches up-and-coming models how to smize season after season, along with The Tyra Banks Show — both of which Banks hosts herself. Also, remember your favorite movie Life-Size? ...»
After walking in 9 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows (including 8 as an official Angel), Tyra hung up her wings. By the time she walked her final VS runway in 2005, she had already gone on to start America’s Next Top Model, teaching aspiring models (and selfie-lovers) everywhere how to smize. ...»
Tyra Banks is said to be furious that she was rejected for the recent Victoria’s Secret TV fashion special, RadarOnline.com has been told.
According to a source, the former supermodel, 40, “was dying to appear on the runways as a surprise in the most recent CBS Victoria Secret Fashion Show” last December, “but was rejected by the brand and the network, despite her long affiliation with the company. She’s outraged and is threatening to never to work with Victoria’s Secret again.” ...»

Thanks to her status as one of the Ford agency’s top models and as the wife of a very well-to-do businessman, Ms. Seymour lives the good life. Her Christmas holidays were spent in Switzerland where, down with the flu, Ms. Seymour recuperated in her chalet bed reading David Remnick’s King of the World about Muhammad Ali. Her holiday was immediately followed by several days of modeling work on St. Barts. ...»
As a youngster herself, Seymour, the middle child of a California real estate-developer father and hairstylist mother, dreamed of becoming an Avon lady. “I used to love the little teeny lipsticks they’d leave at your house,” she says. But instead of ringing doorbells, she’s winning raves. Says photographer Richard Avedon, who shot Seymour for a series of Versace ads: “She combines a perfect body with a dynamite brain and a heart that’s always in the right place.” Her income, too, is in a pretty nice place; she has multimillion-dollar contracts with both Victoria’s Secret and L’Oréal. That should help heal the wounds Seymour suffered when, as a 15-year-old in San Diego (“so skinny and gawky”), she entered Elite Model’s Look of the Year contest—and lost. Failing to win, as well, was a 17-year-old from De Kalb, Ill. Her name was Cindy Crawford. ...»

When Naomi Campbell graces the runway, it makes headlines—so designers make sure to dress the supermodel in their key statement pieces. That was the case at Off-White’s Princess Diana–inspired Spring 2018 show, where designer Virgil Abloh placed Campbell in a look that paid homage to the iconic royal’s duality: a white blazer adorned with a decorative white ruffle worn over cropped spandex leggings. With it, Campbell captured two of Lady Di’s signatures: her love of tailored suiting for her formal duties and her affinity for low-key athletic gear in her personal life. It called to mind the princess’ crisp Catherine Walker suits, as well as the bike-shorts-and-sweatshirt combo she routinely wore to the gym, and the look was an apt summation of Abloh’s ideas for the season. ...»
Campbell made her first appearance in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 1996, the year the event was affectionately referred to as the “Super Bowl for Super Models” due to the impressive list of legends who hit the catwalk in their skivvies. Nine years later, Campbell was the only one of her fellow supes still working the VS runway—and holding her own, thank you very much. ...»
One of the five original supermodels, Naomi Campbell was born in London and caught her break when she was 15 years old.
